Free Spay or Neuter Surgeries Available

The Big Fix for Big D initiative is a multi-year effort of community partners to spay or neuter tens of thousands of pets in Dallas to significantly diminish numbers of unwanted litters, with the ultimate goal of reducing animal euthanasias at Dallas Animal Services.

Through the Big Fix for Big D initiative, the City of Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center (DAS), Spay Neuter Network, Metroplex Animal Coalition (MAC) and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas (SPCA of Texas), will offer spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and registration for Free.

Launched in June 2012, the Big Fix for Big D project in its first year focused on owned dogs and cats and feral/free roaming cats in 18 Dallas zip codes located south of I-30. In the second year of Big Fix for Big D, the partners offer free spay or neuter surgeries for owned animals and free-roaming cats in 8 Dallas zip codes for free. The goal is to decrease animal intakes at Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center by 30% after three years.

Simple Steps to Help Prevent Home Burglaries

Most residential burglaries are crimes of opportunity. Criminals look for easy targets where the risk of detection is low. Chances are good you can lower the burglary appeal at your home by improving security. The more you do to keep your home from looking like an easy mark, the greater your chances of avoiding a break-in.

City of Dallas Implements Twice-Weekly Watering Schedule

The City of Dallas has implemented mandatory watering restrictions.

Irrigation of landscaped areas with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation sys­tems is limited to no more than twice per week according to the MANDATORY schedule. No watering is allowed on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays and watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the allowed watering days. Drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand-watering are permitted on any day.

Please note the schedule below for allowed watering days based upon the last digit of your street address.

The first violation of the restrictions will result in a warning; subsequent violations could mean fines of $250 to $2,000.
